Publisher's Summary

Peaks and Valleys is a story of a young man who lives unhappily in a valley until he meets an old man who lives on a peak, and it changes his work and life forever.

Initially, the young man does not realize he is talking with one of the most peaceful and successful people in the world. However, through a series of conversations and experiences that occur up on peaks and down in valleys, the young man comes to make some startling discoveries.

Eventually, he comes to understand how he can use the old man's remarkable principles and practical tools in good and bad times and becomes more calm and successful himself.

Now you can take a similar journey through the story and use what you find to your advantage in your own work and life.

    "Very useful"

    One of the books that you should read at least once a year. Peaks and Valleys really gets you thinking, and the parable sucks you in.

    Story
    "Amazing story, powerful message."

    Such a well constructed story that conveys some very profound yet common sense messages. This book helps you connect the dots and gives you some good cognitions, all of which you already know to be true but somehow have been programmed to forget. Highly recommended.
